Intel Core i9 7960X Linux Benchmarks
John The Ripper's Blowfish crypto performance puts the 7960X at 25% faster than the Threadripper 1950X.
The Intel X-Series also do better than Threadripper with the x264 video encoding, perhaps due to x264's Assembly tuning and the Intel CPUs handling AVX much better.
The 7960X also wins in this Assembly-written chess engine.
And in timed PHP code compilation.
